Aleksander hrabia Fredro
Zemsta – Papkin


Enough is enough!
What the devil of a thought!
Nowadays every girl is looking
for a horror story, a crocodile
on her mind. Today, what
is destructive and hideous is
fashionable, graceful and pretty.
In former times a young maiden
would say tenderly to her loved
one: „Darling, give me a canary”
Now, every girl says to her
man: „If you don’t want
to infuriate me, darling, give
me a crrocodile!”
